Comment on Houston novelist brings coal-mining to life in Whisper Hollow by Meg Crady https://anopenbookblog.org/houston-novelist-brings-coal-mining-to-life-in-whisper-hollow/#comment-16367 Sat, 09 Feb 2019 17:39:59 +0000 http://anopenbookblog.org/?p=1690#comment-16367 I would like to contact Chris Cander as my book club is reading 11Stories. We would like to invite her to join our next meeting and discussion of the book if that is not too corny.
Can you let me know if she attends these sort of events and if there is any chance she will come to our dinner/discussion?

Comment on Dispatch 5: Houston author Chris Cander and The Weight of a Piano go to Jackson, Mississippi by Thomas Woltz https://anopenbookblog.org/dispatch-5-houston-author-chris-cander-and-the-weight-of-a-piano-go-to-jackson-mississippi/#comment-16252 Thu, 31 Jan 2019 22:02:09 +0000 https://anopenbookblog.org/?p=2444#comment-16252 Chris, glad you are having such a fabulous time
on your book tour. I am a published author, too.
May i recommend the following TV series by the name of “You”. It can be found on Netflix or Prime Video. It is a selfish story of a book store owner who falls in love/lust with a budding female writer in his local college town. It has lots of twitsts and turns (murders), quite entertaining!

Comment on Inprint Writers Workshops: offering more and doing more for the community by Mark Dostert https://anopenbookblog.org/inprint-writers-workshops-offering-more-and-doing-more-for-the-community/#comment-11448 Sat, 21 Apr 2018 20:28:39 +0000 http://anopenbookblog.org/?p=2341#comment-11448 It would have been very intimidating to think of myself as an aspiring writer, much less imagine myself as a published writer, without the opportunities and guidance of two Inprint Personal Essay workshops. The essay I workshopped with Emily Fox Gordon was later published in Ascent and became one of the middle chapters of Up in Here. What a nurturing refuge from our often thought-less world the Inprint House-classroom provides for those of us daring to dream that our words, so long as we’re patient enough to think them through and feel them through, might somehow have relevance and meaning to strangers. There is nothing that says Houston more than the Inprint community.

I would not have written my first novel, or the second one, and now the third without Inprint. Hats off to the dedicated staff for making dreams a reality. You changed my life.

It was beautifully and thoughtfully written. I loved the imagery captured through the eyes of nature, the eyes of an adult, and ultimately, through the eyes of a child. I felt like I was there. You have a gift … and the world awaits…

Comment on Six Tips On Writing From Annie Proulx’s Talk on Craft by Margie Elliott https://anopenbookblog.org/six-tips-on-writing-from-annie-proulxs-talk-on-craft/#comment-8034 Tue, 07 Feb 2017 21:33:01 +0000 http://anopenbookblog.org/?p=2074#comment-8034 Thank you for posting this. Some of us in the Monday night audience were disappointed that we didn’t get to hear more of a discussion about what’s “under the hood” of her work. The reading was long; the discussion was brief.
